I get about the same 20 hrs more or less. The battery on the T1 outlasts my iPhone, and Sony Walkman easily so that's a plus in my opinion. I wish there was an indicator to show that the battery is low though.

May I know does T1 pair well with Fischer DBA-02 MKII?

I don't have the DBA-02 to try, but I have heard them many times and own(ed) similar IEMs. The T1 will pair beautifully with them. It's slight warmth will enhance the slightly dry presentation of the DBA-02s, but without losing any of their detail. It's also got very, very low output impedance so it'll keep the frequency response accurate to the DBA-02 design.

Hey guys, I am currently finding out if the tralucent T1 is for me, I will be using the fiio x3 line out with it but I am rather afraid of the T1 x3 gain along with >1.7V from the fiio x3 when paired with my er4s. Anyone have any experience ???? Is there channel imbalance???

There is a touch of channel imbalance down right at the bottom if the range. Not sure if the 1.7V out will put you in that range. Hopefully others have tried the X3 specifically.

That's pretty much my only qualm with the T1. I wish it had more headroom for lower volume listening. The AK120-S Mod outputs 2V I think tongue.gif. I still prefer the T1 even over the UHA760 Amp

Yep, the gain on the X3 is my sole qualm about it as well. I can check in to my local audio shop and check out that combo. I might only be able to do so for the 4P though. I can't seem to find my 4p/s adapter.

Does anyone happen to know what op-amps are used in the T1? I have added a Fiio E12DIY to my collection and would love to try the T1's op-amps in it. The DIY compares really well in many respects, but the provided op-amps can't match the T1's silky smooth, but detailed sound. I'm wondering if they used OPA627s?

post #462 of 545

No its not 627. I forgot the Op Amp but Gavin has mentioned it before. 627 sounds quite a bit different to my ears vs the T1 amp (that is UHA6 MKII vs T1). The 627 in my opinion is overly smooth and very colored. The T1 really doesn't color the sound for me. It just adds refinement to what is already there and brings good balance with its width and depth presentation of the sound staging. With 627 I felt the mids were quite forward, treble was rolled off and smoothed out, with bass being more prominent. Still quite a musical OP Amp but I got bored of it quickly.

Apparently it's OPA8599 - someone on the E12DIY thread told me

no idea but T1 is like a glass of icy crystal water from Alps during hot day, no colouring of any kind, really love this simple cute little amp.

Love my T1 too, but getting a bit curious about balanced out. So I'm looking at the PB2, anyone have any experiences with both?
